Wilmington, Delaware criminal defense lawyer represented the Defendant charged with Robbing Armored Truck

Philadelphia Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Illegally Possessing a Firearm; Gun was Used in Violent Assault and Armed Robbery

Tayion Spencer, 32, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation after he robbed an armored truck used to collect and deliver U.S. currency in Wilmington, Delaware. Spencer previously worked for the armored truck company and wore his former employer’s uniform while committing the robbery. When Spencer brandished and aimed a firearm at the armored truck driver, a scuffle ensued. Spencer tasered the driver, stole the driver’s firearm, and drove away in the armored truck.

After absconding to Florida, Spencer fled the scene of a traffic stop and, while being pursued by law enforcement, crashed into a marked police vehicle. Palm Beach Gardens Police Department recovered a loaded Glock semi-automatic handgun, a taser matching the one used during the Wilmington robbery, a ski mask, Spencer’s employment paperwork, and approximately $3,200.

U.S. Attorney Weiss stated, “The defendant’s brazen robbery and reckless flight from law enforcement endangered the lives of innocent civilians. Thankfully, law enforcement stopped him before anyone was hurt. I want to commend the Delaware State Police and the FBI for their tireless effort to bring the defendant to justice.”

“Tayion Spencer’s aggressive crime spree and attempt to avoid justice put anyone who happened to be around him at risk. This sentence holds him accountable for his dangerous and violent actions,” said Special Agent in Charge William J. DelBagno of the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office. “We want everyone to know the FBI is committed to working with our law enforcement partners to help make Delaware safer.”

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin P. Pierce. The case was investigated by the Delaware State Police and FBI's Delaware Violent Crime and Safe Streets Task Force with assistance from the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department.


Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to 97 months in federal prison
